Ishmani Baker was arrested at a rural property on Columbia Gardens Road

Trail RCMP, with assistance from a variety of units including Cranbrook Police Dog Services, apprehended Ishmani Baker, a wanted man who had earlier eluded capture.

According to Sgt. Mike Wicentowich, Baker, who evaded a previous attempt to arrest him in Beasley on the weekend, once again tried to escape but the police dog was deployed resulting in a successful capture.

Baker, 21, was arrested for his 10 unendorsed Warrants of Arrest out of Fort. St. John. Baker will be facing criminal charges in addition to the ones from Fort St. John.

Stolen property was located during the arrest and will be returned to the owners.
